If I steal your car and make a write up containing a description of every last part, down to scratches and other flaws, and share it publicly on pastebin, the cops can still arrest me for stealing the car, but disseminating the write up would simply be free speech, and barring copyright (or if I release it under the GPL) anyone else is free to analyze and redistribute it. Any copy of data is NOT the original data, its just a very detailed description of it.
